Music and lyrics by Shohei Kobayashi (2011)
An eagle circles high and in spiral descends.
It's after me. It's after me,
a twisting, whistling flier -- the sky, oh, it rings!
It's grimacing. It's grimacing,
and it spins and it spins and it spins,
and it spins and it spins and it spins.
All too quick I call it quits.
Let it hit. Let it hit!
A twister rips its way through his stablest ends.
It's after him. It's after him.
A heavy, steady grip pulls and flips him with ease,
but still, the trees -- a gentle breeze.
At this point, I believe, I believe.
I believe that I will never be
ever free from what I see
holding me, holding me!
Holding me, holding me,
what I see holding me.
Holding me holding me--
only me holding me!
